Texas grown post-rock instrumental band This Will Destroy You are scheduled to grace the stage at Neumos on Tuesday, March 24 with Cymbals Eat Guitars. I have been looking forward to this show since I first noticed the eerily beautiful show flyers that have cropped up on Capitol Hill.
Since first listening to their song “Quiet” from their debut album, Young Mountain, I have followed TWDY and witnessed them evolve and and the depths of their sound on each album. Throughout this journey, they’ve always held true to their ability to maintain control of slow, building passages and then suddenly orchestrate an intense wall of sound. This characteristic is especially prominent on their new singles “New Topia” and “Dustism,” on which they find new ways to increase their intensity without compromising the emotional aspect they are trying to convey.
